Know How the Bail Bond System Works

Getting arrested is bad news. Thankfully, you can pay bail to get out. The trouble is that sometimes bail can be set too high. This is when you go to a bail bond agency.

How Are Bail Bonds Paid?

Most individuals who are arrested use a bail bond agency to help with posting bail. If you have a friend or loved one who was recently arrested, the best course of action is to contact a bail bond agency who can deal with the Orange County court system. Once you’ve completed an application, the agency will post bail on your loved one’s behalf.

For this service, the bail bond agency normally charges a minimal fee for posting the bail. After the individual is released, if he or she does not show up for the court date, the bail is forfeited by the court and a warrant is issued for his or her arrest.

Average Release Time After Bail Is Paid

Once bail has been posted on your loved one’s behalf, they are released within a matter of a few hours. Orange County allows inmates to be released seven days a week, every day of the year.

For the safety and well-being of your loved one, it is vital that they are released as soon as possible. Contact a qualified bail bond agency to help post bail for your loved one immediately after they’ve made initial contact with you.
